Disclaimer. Several years ago I changed my voter affiliation
from Democrat to Independent. Since then I haven’t voted for any Democrat. Even
if I vote for a Republican candidate, the Republican Party leaves me cold, or
at best, tepid. Why? Mr. Caldara explains the state of the GOP far better than
Last election highly qualified candidates were nominated. They
were about as exciting a paint drying.
The bright spot was the Rifle, CO pistol packing restaurant owner. She is not a
favorite daughter of the country club crowd.
I’ve written before about my years as a Republican precinct
committeeman and how the Evangelical faction of the GOP mounted a campaign to
be rid of me. After losing that election I was soon the Democratic committeeman
for the same precinct. This was in Renton, (King County) WA.
Speaking of the Evangelical Republicans, at the time it
appeared they would always be dominant. Perhaps we are seeing the peak of
(P)regressives? Please! May history repeat itself.
The Republicans liked to gather at a Holiday Inn, dine on
lukewarm Chicken ala King, and feature speaker after speaker giving pats on the
back; such fine people are we Republicans! Much superior to that Democratic
Democrats, I found, got shit faced at a longshoreman’s bar
on Seattle’s Harbor Island while discussing how to grab the Republican balls
and rip them off. Fun crowd!
You will not see me at a Democrat meeting rubbing elbows
with woke P)regressives and communists. I loathe them more than smug country
1970’s cartoon had a man sitting reading a newspaper and
declaring to his nearby wife,
“The more my thinking turns to the right, the more I find in
common with the left. I think I’m becoming a middle of the road extremist”.
Living in the same district as a university, I’m in a blue
dot in perhaps the reddest Colorado County. President Trump received 72% of the
last vote. The Congressional District is
represented by Ken Buck (R), a career politician who may be the most
conservative representative in D.C. Like him or hate him, he is very clear on
where he stands. That I can respect.
An Air Force veteran and married to a cousin had a Facebook
exchange I liked.
The founding fathers you all
love to quote made these laws about guns that shot what one bullet at a time.
There were not envisioning these weapons that can shoot dozens of bullets all
at once. There is a HUGE difference.

At that time
period, the enemy or opponent had the same capability (one shot at a time)!! To
be able to defend yourself, you must have the same firepower as your opponent.
Liberals say the interpretation of the constitution must reflect the changes in
time, so also the 2nd Amendment must reflex the changes in time.
He is a solid man who has a college administrator liberal
daughter. Other than her politics, I quite like her. She is gutsy and
intelligent (for the most part). I admire people who will put it on the line.
On July 1 I had a prostrate procedure performed (not cancer!).
In my head it was a minor procedure. Wrong, WSF! All went well and my recovery,
other than my smug assumptions, is proceeding well. For once in my hard headed
life, I’m following the doctor’s orders. Grrrr! As a bonus I now take just two
prescriptions. One is a very small amount for heart pressure and the other very
small amount for water retention.
The road to ruin the (P)regressive/socialists/communists are
taking us scares me. Not for myself, at age 77 I won’t be living with the long
term damages, but for my sons and grandkids. Will the election process be cleaned
up in enough states to make the 2022 elections a turning point? We can only
President Trump is still saving our butts. His 200+
appointments to the Federal Courts is the only impediment to the woke mob. Those
three branches of government the Founder put in place still work.
